“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ([bible]John 8:12[/bible])

Prayer Direction


Pray for the light of Jesus to show you where you are in spiritual bondage. Ask God to set you free in the power of Jesus. Thank God, as your heavenly Father, for the many ways He provides, protects, and watches over you.

“Live It!” Challenge


Truth and Falsehood Search: Create a file in your phone or get a small notebook you can carry with you for one week. Keep your eyes and ears open for anything you hear that is clearly false, and write down examples of falsehood floating around our world, the media, the work place, school, or your own heart. Then, make a list of things you hear that are clearly true and consistent with God’s truth. At the end of the week, review these lists and ask God to help you hold to truth and recognize lies so you can reject them.
